Kidman Defends Her Love For Her Mother

NICOLE KIDMAN has issued a statement saying she loves her mother "unequivocally", just days after a British newspaper published an interview in which she said her mum left her feeling isolated growing up.

The MOULIN ROUGE! star told THE MAIL ON SUNDAY publication how her mother JANELLE never hugged her or said "I love you".

But Kidman, who has two adopted kids, ISABELLA, 12 and CONNOR, 10, wants to be certain her comments are not misunderstood, and so has spoken out to make clear the strength of her feelings for her mum.

In a statement, Kidman says: "This week's media reports were a hurtful beat-up, which grossly misrepresented my relationship with my mother who knows I love her unequivocally."

Kidman had told The Mail On Sunday, "I love my mother so intensely and so deeply.

"When she left the house and hadn't come home by a certain time, I'd be panicked, up at night crying and waiting for her.

"The way she pushed me to be independent did feel like a rejection but at the same time it was so necessary because I was too much of a child that needed the strength and power of that relationship to exist.

"She'd say, 'Listen, I'm just not the kind of mother who's going to hug you. It's just not me so don't expect it.' That would really hurt. She'd say, 'I'm never going to say I love you. We don't say that in our family.'

"So now I say it (I love you) to all of my family, and don't care that my mum will never say it back - she just won't."
